Pocket therapy!


I am not a big app user, but I am interested in accessible tools which empower people to improve the quality of their life and reduce their stress level in the moment. This app packs a lot of content in very bite-sized, digestible portions. It's great for people on-the-go who may not know when they'll find the time to sit down and read a full book on the topic. The dialogue format effectively and succinctly identifies the relevant question. The text and audio explanations provide helpful perspective to both understand the uncomfortable experience someone may be having, as well as encourage reframing of what might still be holding a lot of charge for people.

I feel better!


Well! I just bought this app. I'm sitting in my kitchen reading thru the content and listening to the short talks - and I feel better. I've been mad at my sister for so long, it's like a part of my physiology. But I read this app and I think, "Okay....I don't have to carry this (i.e., her, my anger, etc) around with me anymore. It's a good reminder. And to think I can just reach in my pocket, open this app and have these tools to get to a more peaceful place is really worth the $2.99...really worth it.

This is "The Real Deal"


This app really landed for me. It just made sense cognitively, emotionally and even at a deep physical level. I'm a psychotherapist and will definitely recommend this for my clients who struggle with anger, resentments, or are not ready to forgive themselves or others in their life. The examples are touching, and I clearly had a visceral response to some of them. I find it so refreshing to find this forgiveness app which encourages compassion and forgiveness at a pace that is respectful to each individual.
